Does anyone get tired of this besides me? It is on 24/7 at my house. I am so sick of the whole mess I could actually go out in the desert and scream! I’m not kidding! I will be so glad when the whole thing is over. However, of course we all know, it will never be over.
Personally, I don’t think any candidate is worth voting for so that is an issue for me. Politicians do not have any of our best interests in mind, don’t you forget it. They only say what you want to hear in order to get elected because then they have it made with a prestigious title, salary, benefits, retirement the rest of us don’t have. I will never change my mind about this, or it will take an awful lot of convincing.
But when you look at the world, I think its always been like this, it’s just more prevalent now with the TV, the internet and news able to travel everywhere almost at the same time its being made. Years ago, it took weeks, if not months, to get news from one place to another. The politicians haven’t changed in all that time, still having their own interests at heart.
They screw the people over, always have, and always will, to get the money for their own agendas. They have no idea what it is like to live in the real world because they don’t have to do it and make ends meet. I have no compassion for these people. There are no saviors to solve the world’s problems out there. For the ones who think so, you certainly have your head in the sand.
This is a subject where my husband is the eternal optimist, as long as a Republican is in office. I never have and refuse to vote by any party ticket. I think we should judge each person running on their own merits and none of them has any I can agree with. Politics is a hot topic at my house; I try to stay away from this if possible. My husband is about as passionate here as I am about writing. It is his whole world. We have to eat on TV trays every night so he can catch all the political talking heads he watches daily.
When these politicians talk it reminds me of the only time I was on a jury for a trial, don’t ask me why that flashes through my head. The thing that struck me most about that experience is that there was a definite difference in the lawyers, one was a little mouse, and the other was dynamic. I don’t need to tell you whose side won.
There are no dynamic, charismatic people this year, so nobody stands out from the herd, at least in my opinion. They all promise the same thing and we all know, or should know, from experience that they never deliver. This country is in desperate need of a third party, one that would be different and actually work for the people who elected them. Sadly, this will probably not happen anytime soon, if at all.
